Lightbulb How do I add a picture that will show up when I post?

If you would like to add a symbol, graphic or a picture of yourself that will show up whenever you post in this forum, click on "User CP" in the function bar at the top of the page. Once you have done that you will see a Control Panel on the left side of the page. Click on "Edit Avatar" and it will take you to a screen where you can pick from 11 pages of preset graphics or a custom avatar from a URL or your own computer.

If you are using your own, be sure it is a reasonable size or it won't upload properly. The file size recommended is 80 x 80 pixels (about 3/4 of an inch square) or 19.5 KB.

You can reduce the size of your file with any image editing program. The easiest way to do this is open it in the program and then go to File-->Save As-->and save your file as a .gif. This just changes the resolution and how many colors the file has to remember, but it won't make it look any different unless you will print the file, which is why we "Save As" to save it as a different file without replacing the one we have.

This screen also gives you the option of not using an avatar if you get tired of it.

Still have a question? Please respond to this post and I will be happy to help you with your avatar needs!

In the toolbar click on
Here, you need to enter the url of the image you want to post. If it's an image on your computer, you'll need to upload it so it's on the web. You can do that for free at www.photobucket.com. Let me know if you need more help!

That seems like a lot of work...lol. Maybe someday I will do it. The waiting for slow dial up is frustrating. Oh well, I am just happy to be here! LOL!

When I have more time I will try to upload one of my dog Jake, I would love to share a pic of him with everyone, he is adorable! He is part Shih Tzu and part Yorkie. He is tiny and so much fun!
